I have been using Windows 8 for some time and quite happily must say.
But why oh why they had to screw up USB microphones, I was reading whole day today how almost none of the more expensive mics are working under windows 8 properly.
Either recording is too quite or USB device driver wont install at all..
It is not fault of HW as mics work on the same setup under win 7, it is pure fuck up on Microsoft part, changing something how USB audio devices are recognized…
Devices I tried:
AT2020 - recognized but driver wont install
The system cannot find the file specified
Blue Snowball – works, but very very quite recording, almost useless…
and this are 100+ Eur USB microphones and nobody will tell you that they don’t work with windows 8
The advice you get from windows live ( MS support ) if you manage to log in as that damn retarded site doesn’t work in anything but IE ( which I uninstalled the moment I downloaded chrome and firefox )
